Will Ferrell vs a beardless Zach Galifianakis.

Ready — Fight!

With the presidential election a few months away, it’s only right to poke fun at the process, and who better to do that then two major clowns of Hollywood?

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis star as opposing candidates in a rural southern state where absolute insanity occurs.

The film centers on an incumbent candidate Cam Brady (Ferrell) who doesn’t expect to be opposed in his run for a fifth-term, but he finds an unexpected challenger in the unassuming and dim-witted Marty Huggins (Galifianakis).

The trailer is a bit wild, and actually doesn’t have as many jokes as you’d expect from a film with these two. Right off the bat I’m not a big fan of Galifianakis’ voice in the film, he comes off as too soft and sweet, but that’s probably the point.

The film also stars The film also stars Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, and Dan Aykroyd.

The Campaign hits theaters on August 10th, 2012.
